Boston, MA, June 8, 2000 — The inimitable Bernie Rubin, a.k.a. Bernie from Bernie & Phyl’s Furniture, (pictured in the center), recently took a group of kids from the Home For Little Wanderers in Boston (some of whom are pictured here) to see their first baseball game. Bernie, an avid Red Sox fan, arranged for the kids to get a private tour of the park, to watch batting practice before the gates opened, and to meet some of the Red Sox including Manager Jimy Williams and Wendell Kim, the team’s Third Base Coach (pictured in front). Every year, Bernie plans to take a group of needy children to see a Red Sox game as part of his “Bernie’s Baseball Buddies” program, which was launched with this first outing. Lots of fun was had by all – even if it was sometimes hard to tell the big kid from the little kids!
